    Hi all,

    Another noddy question from me. What is this called, and were can I get one? I've hunted high and low.

    Need one to hold a table steady in the cupboard. Doesn't have to be identical to the one shown - it's inside a cupboard anyway. I'm sure if I knew what it was called, Google would help find one :)

    Thanks!

    Not a cleat I'm afraid. Tried to show with the inset picture - it twists.

    It's called a 'Turn Button' I think.

    Sorry, didn't realise it turned... a turn buckle of some type.
